2014 Early Detection Oral Cancer Campaign
In 2014 Swanson Dentistry’s healthcare focus is on Early
Oral Cancer Detection. According to the
Oral Cancer Foundation, 2013 was the fifth year in a row where an increase in
oral cancers was recorded. Currently one person each hour dies of oral cancer.
Because of these staggering facts, we at Swanson Dentistry are
dedicated to offering a comprehensive oral cancer exam at every preventive
appointment. We also integrate into our exams a
state-of-the-art oral cancer detection technology called the VELscope.
The VELscope is an innovative, painless, inexpensive method
of detecting oral cancers invisible to the eye and touch. It cost you only $15.00 and takes less than

In honor of Oral Health month in February, we offered all
our VELscope services FREE.
